“Zählwerke. Kunst in Zeiten der Aufmerksamkeitsökonomie”

Interventionen - ZaehlwerkeThe Kassel arts university has a long-standing cooperation with the local regional council – every year, several students develop works for the “Interventionen” exhibition inside the regional council’s administrative building. In 2017, “Interventionen” presents new work by students involved in the earlier exhibitions. For the catalogue, I wrote a short text on the ‘value’ of arts in our contemporary neo-liberal society, ‘value’ being defined through institutionalized attention economics.
